(CBS News) "Arrested Development" fans won't have to wait a week between episodes when Netflix debuts its highly-anticipated fourth season next year - in fact, they won't have to wait at all.

The video service will release all 10 new episodes on a single day, Netflix chief Ted Sarandos confirmed to reporters Tuesday at the National Association of Broadcasters convention, according to Vulture.

Last year, it was announced that a new season of "AD"would be available for instant viewing on Netflix sometime in 2013.

Series creator Mitch Hurwitz also told reporters he originally planned to make each new episode center around a self-contained story featuring a different character, but "That is now kind of evolving into becoming more like the old show again."

Hurwitz made no mention of the "Arrested Development" movie that's been expected to follow the fourth season, Vulture added, but did say he'd be open to doing additional seasons on Netflix.
